Solutions to Common Dishwashing Problems
(continued)
Dishwasher
Does Not Drain
Properly
• If unit is hooked up to a food waste disposer,
make sure the disposer is empty.
• Check to see if the knockout
plug has been
removed from inside the food waste
disposer
inlet.
• Check to see if drain hose is kinked.
• Make sure cycle is complete,
not in a pause.
Cycle Takes a Long Time
• Is cycle in a water heating delay?
• Has the delay start option been selected?
• Has the sanitize option been selected?
Dishwasher
Won't Fill
• Is water supply turned on?
• Does overfill protector
move up and down
freely? (See Overfill Protector section.)
Dishwasher
Has an Odor
• Soiled dishes left in dishwasher
too long
can create an odor. Use Rinse Only cycle.
• There will be a "new" smell when first
installed.
This is normal.
• Check to see if unit is draining properly.
(See Dishwasher
Does Not Drain Properly.)
Removing
Spots and Film
Hard water can cause lime deposit buildup on
the interior of the dishwasher.
Dishes and
glasses may also get spots and film for a
number of reasons.
(See Glassware/Flatware
Spotted or Cloudy section.) To remove buildup,
spots and film, clean using the following
instructions:
1. Load clean dishes and glasses in normal
manner. Do not load any metal utensils or
silverware.
2. Do not add detergent.
3. Select the NORMAL WASH cycle. Close
and latch door. Press START/CANCEL
pad.
4. Allow dishwasher
to run until it starts the
second water fill (approximately
10 minutes).
5. Unlatch and open door and pour 2 cups of
white vinegar into the bottom of
dishwasher.
6. Close and latch door and allow cycle to
finish.
Note: If these conditions
persist, a home water
softener should be considered.
Stains on Tub Interior
• Washing large amounts of dishware
with
tomato based soil can cause a pink/orange
appearance.
This will not affect performance
and will gradually fade over time. Pre-
rinsing or using the Rinse Only cycle will
reduce the chance of staining. Using no heat
dry option will lessen staining.
